The Snow Day Challenge

Mother Nature has caused an increasing number of canceled school days in the last few years, particularly in the eastern United States. In Michigan, we have seen school districts extend their school years to make up for lost days. Both staff and students often get frustrated with the increasing number of interruptions. Just because people are not physically in the building does not mean that learning has to stop. Let’s grab onto the opportunity to educate students during those days. Discovery Education offers an easy way to engage, educate and entertain students.

This session will be “all hands on deck” as we figure out the best way to put together a collection of resources that can be assigned to students that are experiencing “School Canceled” due to the weather.

A Snow Day Challenge is a short independent assignment that is issued by a teacher, principal or superintendent during a canceled school day. Typically, the challenge is designed to be a fun learning experience that keeps a student engaged during a down day. A Snow Day Challenge can be an exciting opportunity for those “days off”.

My goal it to put together a collection of up to 10 ready-made grade-level assignments that can be easily assigned during weather related cancelations. They should be designed in a way that students are excited and can’t wait to get online to complete the challenge.
